‘Dumb Teen Heartache’ is the highly anticipated debut EP from Sydney indie-pop trio PEPTALK.


A nostalgic deep dive into the band’s own dumb teen heartaches, the EP digs into the girls’ personal coming-of-age experiences. Always putting their impeccable song writing skills at the front and centre, the EP is sonically energetic, lyrically driven and drenched in self-awareness.

PEPTALK are your wholesome friends giving unsolicited advice. Boasting two thirds queer, two thirds POC and all three thirds female, PEPTALK is determined to be the positive representation they longed for growing up. Made up of Jay-Lee Kwan, Lara Frew and Phoebe Sinclair, PEPTALK’s presence has a comfort and confidence that only time and genuine friendship can bring.

Each songwriters at their core, together they have written for artists and producers in the USA, Canada, Sweden, South Korea, France, New Zealand, UK and at home in Australia.

Formed on a mutual adoration for song writing, pop hooks and iconic women in the music industry, PEPTALK is influenced by the likes of Remi Wolf, MUNA and HAIM. The DIY release of their third and final single of 2022 'Hey!' earned them their first Spotify editorial playlists with New Music Friday, Pop n Fresh & Fresh Finds.

In their first year they’ve performed at Moomba Festival, St Kilda Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival, Parramatta Lanes Festival, Sofar Sounds Sydney, TedX Brisbane and supported Cry Club and Vetta Borne on their respective headline tours. PEPTALK bring an infectious energy along with a fierce desire to befriend literally everyone.
